[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 109m | 33 levels | Student Accom

Come the fuck on, really? It looks like a cheese stick. This kind of shit is proof that our planning commission are too lax on the quality of developments. This kind of stuff wouldn't get up elsewhere in Australia.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

As reported on 9 News Adelaide yesterday: Taxpayers facing bill of 98 million dollars for cost of repairs from wall collapse and road extension. This is made up of 29 million for the cost of repairs and another 69 million for road extensions which was not part of the original plans Looks like the s...

The InterContinental and Hilton would lend themselves nicely to glazed cladding. However I think the most we'll ever see is either a restoration of the current treatment (that sandstone look) or a paint job (heaven forbid!)

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

I heard the old BNKR may become yet another Chemist Warehouse. Which would make 4 in the Mall and 5 in the city, and clearly an anti-competitive move to swamp out nearby chemists. They need to buy another chemist for the license. Are we aware of any pharmacies closing down in the mall? Oh true, I f...

This has been approved. Right. Application has received approval 23 August 2019 (source: https://www.saplanningportal.sa.gov.au/public_register#view-4278-LUA) Decision notification form says, however, that they'd still building rules consent here. No idea, though, if they are already working with t...

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

I feel that one reason the Southbank Promenade in Melbourne is so successful is that there are destinations at either end (Federation Square at one, and South Wharf and beyond at the other). I'll be honest, it's a glorified path that leads to Crown Casino. But I like it. It has atmosphere, vibe and...

[COM] Re: Victoria Square Upgrade - $24m

Perhaps I'm misremembering, but I seem to recall Abiad as one of the councillors who were less than supportive of the project at the time. Either way, glad it's back on the agenda, even if still years away and likely to cost much more to fully achieve the masterplan than is being mooted below: Abia...

[U/C] Re: New Calvary Hospital | 60m | 12 lvls | Cnr Angas/Pulteney

I must say, after how well this development has come along and turned out, I would be fully in support of the government taking up on the developer's offer to build the new Women's and Children's Hospital. Especially considering how much this hospital cost and the design and finishings are just as g...

I truely wish Dwell didn’t exist. I actually think that Dwell could provide for a perfect opportunity to demonstrate what the East End has always been about. Before the Markets closed and Maras build the apartment and retail precinct that occupies much of the site, there were a heap of large murals...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

These car-park plans just go to show how little the public has had access to the overall plans for this redevelopment. Based on the renders released a few years ago, I was of the impression that the plaza would level up with KWS, but it now looks as though you will have to climb a flight of stairs t...

It’s the GPO as has been reported sporadically for close to a decade.
Well, it's not because GPO is to turned into a hotel which will use almost the entire GPO building with a mixture of restaurants and function spaces.

I can’t say much. To be honest I don’t know a lot other than the location but it is in the central cbd but does not have mall frontage.
Well that's me out of ideas. I know that Woolworths aren't intending on renewing their lease which expires next year I think?
